Do you go mostly for marketing and networking, or do you also find sales a strong component of the expo?
With so much awesome in one place (CTNX) do you ever get overwhelmed? (Good way? Bad way?)
Just out of curisoty, who would you say are the artists/peers that influenced you the most in 2013?

You’ve got some mad speed-painting skills. Ever consider doing a project speed-style?
Lil’ Red
Lil Red is simply beautiful what programs did you use, and how long did it take to complete?
The layouts in Lil’ Red are bright, whimsical and very painterly. What can you tell us about ariving at that aesthetic?
I’m assuming you’re using Photoshop for your illustration and painting… What’s your favorite online resource for brushes and techniques?
(Daily) Faces Project (Halloween 2013)
I love the whole rectangle-head theme. What promted it?
Your blog consists mostly of still images. Do you prefer illustrating to animating?
